    Most of our birds are easy to tell what they are except these 4 rescues we took in. They are the size of our B B Reds. They have heavily feathered feet

    They're bantams?, they look like d'Uccles, are the combs single?

    That multi colored one is a D'Uccles. The orange one looks like a buff orpington. The white one could be a cochin or silkie.

    The golden is a BO. The rest look like D´Uccles. Maybe you could get us a photo that is more Close-up? Thanks!

    So there is a bantam BO? Sorry for the fuzzy photos but it was so hot outside and my camera came out from a cool house

    There are buff orpington bantams, for instance Cackle Hatchery sells them. I am confused about how many chickens there are, are there four with feathered feet or only three, and then is the fourth one you are talking about the buff orpinton looking one in the pictures above that does not have feathered feet?

    Yes, there are bantam Buff Orpingtons. Every breed of chicken recognized by the American Poultry Association has a bantam counterpart, except in the case of the Barnevelder.
